OWM Buffalo Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction and Meditation
Buffalo and Western New York Premier Mindfulness Facility
Mindfulness is a lifetime engagement. The objective of meditation is not to get somewhere else, but to be where and as we actually are in this very moment. Whether the experience is pleasant, unpleasant, or neutral, one of the keys to healthy and active living is being mindful of one’s environment and actions. Approaching each situation without judgment benefits you every aspect of your life.
What Are The Benefits Of Meditation?
Meditation cultivates an awareness of what the mind is attending to and the ability to manage what goes on in one’s being, without getting hijacked by it.
Meditation is linked to lowering blood pressure and reducing overall arousal and emotional reactivity. A mindful approach to a stressful situation allows for a more rational reaction and a more productive solution. Mindful exercise carries significantly higher health benefits from cardiac health to strength building. Mindful eating improves digestion, absorption of vital nutrients, and curbs indigestion. OWM Buffalo mindfulness’s program is an integral part of the wellness experience.

Does MBSR Work?
Completed studies have found that pain-related drug utilization decreased, and activity levels and feelings of self-esteem increased for a majority of participants. MBSR is an accredited therapy practice offered in over 200 medical centers, hospitals, and clinics around the world. Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn developed the MBSR program n the Stress Reduction Clinic at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center in 1979. This new form of complementary medicine addresses a variety of health problems. More information on these studies can be found on the University of Massachusetts Medical School website: Center for Mindfulness.
